Garden State Equality’s largest annual fundraiser, the Equality Walk, raises thousands of dollars each year for the organization. This year, the Equality Walk has expanded, and includes events in Atlantic City, Asbury Park, and Montclair. Borgata is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2018 event, which brings hundreds together to support New Jersey LGBTQ advocacy and education.
Established in 2004, Garden State Equality is the largest LGBTQ advocacy organization in New Jersey; their services include a variety of policy work, trainings, and support for the community. Their work is informed by racial, economic, and disability justice concerns. They are working to address safe environments for youth, improvement of health services that meet LGBT community needs, and respectful treatment of seniors. Beyond that, Garden State Equality supports New Jersey’s activist community by bringing an LGBT lens to the shared struggle for justice.
The Atlantic City Equality Walk is on October 13 in Brighton Park at 11AM; registration begins at 10AM. Funds raised at Equality Walk 2018 will support the innovative work Garden State Equality is doing in the areas of policy, education, and health, including providing professional development, workshops, and special events with schools, healthcare organizations, and other groups.
